I would like to use Dropbox so that people could host files into a folder.
For now, they have to share manually each link and put this link in the csv file in order to import files into a website. The import process is done using a plugin called WP All Import that allows files to be downloaded from external URL.
Could I use a shared folder that is publicly accessible with the link. Let's say the link is something like: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/0fihswd8yfyczw9/AABt2G9yyP4HDF_SAN-JKG7ca?dl=0
Than create downloadable file link with filename?
I heard of /create_shared_link_with_settings endpoint but I can't find any tutorial how to use it.
Could you indicate me the way to do this please?
Any help would be really appreciated.
Actually, they uploaded files from their accounts in a shared folder.
They need individual links for each file so that import process could work. The URL needs to start with http or https.
Ideally, I would like a link with the same prefix (the shared folder link) and the filename (i.e: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/AAbbCCEeFF123/myfilename.jpg) so that they don't need to manually generate a shared link for each file.
The Shared Links have their own "format" so you need to get the metadatada, parse the name and then perform the download and apply that parsed name and file extension. At least that's how I do that using .NET on a fully "apished" (lol) application.
I'm sorry I really don't unier stand how to use endpoint. Where to load the script? How to use it? Is there a tutorial somewhere?
Also I was thinking about sync dropbox files into a webserver so that I could use the absolute Path of the web Server to get files URL.
